The cost of sending a letter or card in the Netherlands will rise five cents to 78 cents next year, postal delivery group PostNL said on Monday.
However, there will be no increase in the basic cost of sending a small parcel or package which fits through a letter box, the company said.
The cost of a stamp has now doubled in 11 years while the amount of letter post is falling steadily.
